Horror: Colorado teachers reportedly telling students they must tape masks to their faces so they don't wear them improperly
Why parents are allowing Democrat COVID Nazis to continue wielding power they do not have and implement lunatic ideas is a question for the ages, but apparently, that sort of parental indifference has also manifested itself in a Colorado school district, where teachers are reportedly forcing students to tape masks to their faces so they don't wear them improperly, in compliance with a mandate to wear one.
According to Breitbart News
, "Academy School District 20 will interview over 100 students and staff members to investigate the credibility of these allegations after a picture of a sixth-grader from Chinook Trail Middle School with a mask taped to her face went viral on social media" during a recent weekend.
More details were reported by Fox21
, which noted that the mother of the child in question posted the photo to social media inquiring if any other parents knew of the "policy" of taping masks to students' faces and if it had occurred with other students.
“It’s a type of a restraint to me,” said the parent, Stephanie M., according to the local outlet, which added:
Stephanie told FOX21 News that on Friday she sent her daughter a picture from Timehop, an app that shares photos from years past, and said her daughter sent a selfie in return. In that picture, her daughter was wearing a mask with tape on it. Stephanie said that’s when she started asking questions.
“With the mask mandates and everything… she likes them because they hide her face ’cause of acne or whatnot. What really made me sad was that she didn’t see what was wrong,” the mother noted further.
She went on to say that her daughter was given just one warning to wear her mask over her nose or she would be required to tape it into place. She added that her daughter said teachers have been forcing other students to do so for weeks.
“She said the teachers were wearing the masking tape around their wrists like bracelets and whenever someone’s mask would fall down, they would tape them,” another parent, Tori Skeldum, told Fox21. “It’s sad that our world is coming to this and teachers would think it is OK.”
The school district has had a mask mandate in place since Sept. 27 because a high number of students were forced to quarantine
. However, many parents believe the school district is taking the masking requirement way too far -- and they are 100 percent correct because mask mandates don't do squat to keep kids 'safe' from this virus
“It’s developing some sort of mentality in our children,” Stephanie said. “Your face is you, that is how people know you. They are just doubling down on hiding you and not letting you breathe and… it’s conformity to the extreme.”
The school district essentially punted, with administrators claiming they just didn't have enough information yet to make a determination as to whether the sixth-grader's claims were accurate (like, how hard is it to go to the teacher in question and ask
, 'Are you making your students tape their masks in place?').
“Currently, we do not have concrete findings. As we know more, we will keep our community apprised. We thank our community for their patience and support as we take the appropriate steps to address these serious allegations," the district said.
The 'appropriate steps' would be to warn the teacher(s) in question not to make their students tape masks in place and if they do so again that'll be their last day on the job.
But we don't live in that kind of a country anymore, obviously.
“We’ve heard rumors that students did it on their own; we’ve heard rumors that teachers handed out the tape; we’ve heard rumors that teachers joked about it, but the students got the tape. There are so many versions of this story. That is why we need to actually talk with every single student and find out what really happened,” D-20 Chief Communications Officer Allison Cortez said.
No, they don't. They need to talk to a few students and a couple of teachers. This is stalling for the sake of stalling.
Meantime, parents at this school district should be showing up to board meetings and demanding these teachers stop making kids tape masks to their faces.
Or hire lawyers.
